Luis Miguel invested in a Nuna Coffee drying box that can regulate the temperature and the humidity to dry the coffee. These boxes were pioneered in Colombia to try and combat the extremely challenging in the ever changing daily climates in the Colombian Andes. To start this project they selected a few local producers who are known for quality to buy cherry from over the regular market price. Then they set up a sorting station to pick the ripest cherry and create uniformity. The varietal used in this lot is Orange Castillo. After picking and separation the coffee is then washed and fermented in sealed barrels for 48 hours. After this it is then put in the drying box where it is dried for 100-120 hours.

The community of Worka Chelbessa is located in Gedeb, which is the most southern part of the Gedeo region.

In 2017, Neguesse started operating his first site in Worka Chelbessa, but quickly expanded in 2019 by buying another washing station a few kilometers away in a small area sub area of Worka Chelbessa called Danche. The two sites, run by Negusse and his team, execute immaculate washed and natural processed coffees, but also create unique experimental lots in an effort to always keep improving their quality.
